Dr. Miller, the chiropractic doctor at Integrated Health Sports and Wellness Center, believes that chiropractic care is more about understanding and taking care of the body than it is about simply making pain disappear. At his spacious wellness center that's been featured on FOX 4 Kansas City TV News, he and his staff of healthcare professionals work to find out the source of any problems, rather than treating just the symptoms. Offering chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, and electrical muscle stimulations, along with a host of other services, the friendly staff customizes treatments to every individual. They can perform a cold laser liposuction treatment, or render custom foot orthotics made to improve daily movement—specifically, to improve bus-chasing capabilities.
Doctor of Naturopathy Inge Wetzel assesses the condition of the human body by studying some of its less conventionally considered aspects. She uses a computerized biofeedback system to monitor impulses emitted by the hand, subsequently drawing conclusions about the body’s balance. Similarly, she reads markings on the iris, the colored part of the eye, to screen for problems that span the body. Kinesiology sessions test for weaknesses in certain muscles to reveal physical or nutritional deficiencies, and biological terrain assessments will show stresses on different organs based on the body's internal environment. Dr. Wetzel also offers personalized weight-loss programs.
As a chiropractor with additional certifications in soft-tissue techniques, such as the Graston technique and Kinesio taping, Kerri Howerton uses a range of approaches to find the best way to resolve back pain.

At Kansas City Dental, Dr. Guerschon de Laurent addresses cosmetic, restorative, and preventative oral-health issues at their roots. The multilingual doctor employs a host of technologies, including intraoral cameras and digital x-rays, to project detailed views of the mouth and to find the underlying causes of dental aches and periodontal disease. Dr. Laurent corrects crowding or spacing problems with Invisalign retainers, gently coaxing teeth back into place with such successful results that in 2011 he earned the title of Premier Invisalign Provider in recognition of the more than 300 jaws he’s straightened. A commander in the US Army Reserves Dental Corps, Dr. Laurent also plies his trade abroad while serving members of the armed forces and on humanitarian missions that have taken him to Central America and the Caribbean.
